Is it true that people have sex at younger ages today than in previous generations?
The short answer is no. The rates and ages that young people are having sex have stayed relatively the same over the past few decades. It is, however, a common misbelief that teens have become more sexually active earlier on in life.
So why does this misconception still exist?
